For Shinzo Abe, amending Japan’s basic law is becoming increasingly important.
But as it stands, the Constitution does not clearly state the existence of Japan’s Self-Defense Forces.
Abe’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party wants to make several amendments to the Constitution, but the one involving the SDF has been the most controversial.
32 percent said it’s not, and 30 percent said amending the Constitution is neither necessary nor unnecessary.
Amending the Constitution has been a key political goal for Abe for more than a decade.
